The Diary of Anne Frank


by Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank Monday, April 17, 1944 Summary

  • Anne wonders if she is acting morally to cuddle and kiss Peter without any intention of marrying him. We’re wondering if she’s actually even kissing him on the lips, but regardless, this seems to be a big deal for the 1940's.
  • She wonders if she should talk to her father. And certainly, she thinks she and Peter should talk about it; she does not want simply the physical intimacy, but emotional intimacy as well.
